Mindful : February 2016
How often do you talk yourself out of something before you’ve even tried? Years of negative messages may have worn you down, but an innate confidence and ease is at your fingertips—if you just take a moment to discover it. By Elisha and Stefanie Goldstein Start your day out right The way we start our day makes a big difference in how we feel the rest of the day. Take a moment to pause, check in with how you’re feeling, relax your body, think about what you’re grateful for, and bring a sense of presence to your morning routine. Check your body posture Science shows that how we hold our bodies directly impacts our confidence. Try slumping over and saying, “I feel confident today!” It doesn’t compute. Through- out the day, try relaxing the body, rolling your shoulders back, and standing straight. Go ahead and fake it till you make it—your brain will soon get the message. Take time for your confidence team Make a list of the people who nourish and encourage you. Make an extra effort to have more reg ular contact with them and less contact with people who are deplet- ing to you. Ideally, you can do this is in person, but a simple text back and forth will also help. Do something you’re good at One of the best motiva- tors to continue a behavior is when we feel like we are “good” at something. Whether it’s drawing, run- ning, being a good friend— do more of what makes you feel good about yourself. Invite your fears for tea We each carry around deep-seated fears about ourselves, from “I’m not good enough,” and “I’m not worthy” to “When will they see that I’m a phony.” What if instead of running away from your fears, you invited them in with curiosity. Ask yourself, “ What am I believing right now, and is it absolutely true?” You may be surprised by the answer, and by how much that can take the intensity out of your fear. → Be Confident & at Ease 24 mindful February 2016 how to live a mindful life Illustrations by Susa Talan
